Never Stop!You know, things may seem very blurry at times, sometimes even after a great happening of any sort, but the last thing you ever wanna do is stop, never stop, what ever happens, even if it means taking one step at the time, but never stop, you have to believe in the process, everything will become clear and you'll be able to run again.Never Stop!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
then things will become blurry again, you know why? because you're stepping into unknown territory and that's healthy, we're curious creatures, we want to know more, but we wont be able to learn more if we stop, so if you over came one blurry stop that doesn't mean you know all there is to know, in fact the more you know the more you realize there is you don't know.
so go out there and get into those blurry fields and get out of them and learn and just enjoy life!!! its boring when you stop, so start running before your time ends!!! Maybe you'll invent something for us?

To share what you love IIHey everyone,To share what you love II1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A little while ago I posted an art feature called To share what you love, because it had been a long time since I had done a feature just for the heck of it, filled with works I love, unaffiliated with any of the groups I'm an admin of, or any other specific purpose for the DA community. I figured I would do another one, just to share some amazing work that I love. So here it goes:

Win A Copy Of The Official Character Bible!!Hello fellow Kuroko no Basuke fans!Win A Copy Of The Official Character Bible!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know you have stacks of other journals and messages so I'll keep this short.
WE'RE RUNNING AN ART CONTEST!
YOU CAN WIN A COPY OF THE OFFICIAL CHARACTERS BIBLE (can ship anywhere in the world straight from Japan!)
What's the characters bible book?
It's a delicious 250 page book full of illustrations / characters info/ profiles / interviews / rankings / etc etc. Yeah yeah I know you can probably find scanned pages of it online. But WHO in their right mind refuses a freebie which you can touch and feel with your own hands and not destroy your eye sight trying to read stuff in your computer for hours! And also, there's a pull out poster -drool- which you can worship and ogle at your own time. Up to you. ^_~ kufufu--! You know you want it!!
So here's what you have to do...
Draw a character/s of your choice from Kuroko no Basuke. He/ she has to be either doing something related to his "HOBBY" or "SPECIA

"What?! Its not my fault your wearing that." Bucky grinned. You decided to wear a dress today. A short dress...
Which was a big mistake..
"James Bucky Barnes stop being such a pervert." You growled and walked off. You heard him whistle.
Bucky Barnes the guy who everything is nice and lovely but you think he is a major dick. He always whistles at you, makes you feel uncomfortable and sometimes touches you...
Not in a bad way; but you can't help but like it..no (Y/n) you don't like it, he is a loser.
"Steve!" You say folding your arms. Steve Rogers the short guy, but a hell of a sweet man.
"Yes, (Y/n) whats the matter? Why are you hurt?" Steve says concerned.
"James keeps on looking under my skirt and I really don't like it." You said upset. Steve sighed.
"He's a jerk (Y/n) but he is a nice guy. But he is being an idiot so let me talk to him." You smiled.
"Thank you sooooooo much Steve." You said

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Taking Care of Yourself
You know it's out there: the dreaded smell of unwashed bodies. At Sakura-Con, it's called H.O.B.O.: Horrible Otaku Body Odor. We here at Sakura-Con have declared the convention a "No H.O.B.O. Zone." To enforce that, we have provided a checklist that will help you keep that smell to an absolute minimum, and your con experience will be much more pleasant. Please remember to bring these things with you!
The Top Twenty Items Forgotten by Convention Attendees (a Checklist)
1. Personal towel. (We know the hotel provides them, but if you're sharing a room with several people, this guarantees you your very own towel. Also, if you plan on using a lot of makeup for a costume or dying your hair and use hotel towels, you will be charged a hefty fee for damaging hotel property. Please bring your own towels if you plan to do this.)
2. Shampoo and conditioner. (Again, the hotel provides these, but the bottles are quite small. Bringing your own ensures you
Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!As a member of the Artisan Craft community here at DeviantART, I looove to browse around the AC galleries and see what other deviants are up to, what things are trending, and look for up and coming artists to feature in the future. But sadly there's one trend I've been noticing that is very, very bad.Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Undercharging your work!
Let's start off with the most important thing. Now I know some cheap buyers love these low prices, but let's be honest cheap buyers-- you're not long term supporters. People who want your work for super cheap are people who will haggle or snag a deal and run. There is nothing wrong with having sales, getting rid of old charms for cheap, or even doing discounts for special occasions but you can't cater to the cheapskates! xD You want people who appreciate handmade items for what they are. And that's a unique, quality piece.
If someone wants to buy all your hard work for just $5, perhaps you could redirect them to Forever21 to get some mass produced jewelry i
Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
[GUIA] OCs, Personas e Fursonas!Buna! :icononiwhistle:[GUIA] OCs, Personas e Fursonas!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hoje vamos ter um guia bem rapidinho sobre OCs, Personas e Fursonas. Não há muita coisa para dizer então vai ser mesmo bem rápido. Aqui vamos saber o que são cada um desses termos.
OCs - Original Caracter é um personagem original criado por você mesmo. Ou seja, aqueles personagens que você fez o design, deu nome, criou história e características é um OC seu.
Para ser um OC precisa ter história, nome, etc?
Não. Você pode criar um OC sem ter desenvolvido todos esses itens. Somente o design ou a idéia conceitual já fazem dele um OC, desde que ele seja original, claro.
Se eu criar um personagem de um desenho animado, ainda é OC?
Sim, ainda é um OC. São chamados de half-Ocs, meio OCs, semi-originais, entre outros. Normalmente não se estampa algo diferente para eles, por isso são OCs mesmo assim. Esses OCs são aqueles que são feitos dentro de um universo já existente. Ou seja, se você pegar um pônei de My Little Pony e dar-lhe características e des
Collection: Alternative UniverseCollection: Alternative Universe9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin
Tips for Selling CommissionsA lot of artists either already work for commissions or are interested in doing so. Here is a collection of tips on how to take commissions, communicate with your client, and send out a finished product.Tips for Selling Commissions5 years ago in Personal More Like This
When taking commissions it is a good idea to have an email account for just that purpose. This should only be used for your commissions. Creating this account will make it easier to contact clients, build an address book of their contact information, and keep you personal communications separate from your business ones. You can easily use one of the many free providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo, or Google for this purpose.
Keep your e-mails to your client friendly but focused. You don’t have to be extremely formal in your emails with a client but you don’t want to share too many details of your life either. Instead, focus on the work. Are you excited to work with the client or are you thrilled to be coloring or painting a specific subject? Don’t be
PE: Marketing Your Adoptables[deviantART Related]PE: Marketing Your Adoptables1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What are Adoptables?
Adoptables are character designs that can be adopted or purchased by other deviants. The cost for these can be a set price or are sold in an auction-like manner (highest bid wins).
For a more in-depth look at what Adoptables are, check out ginkgografix's PE: Adoptables article.
Marketing Your Adoptables
With the adoptables trend growing larger and larger each day, it can be difficult to sell your adoptables as well as yourself. In this article, I have listed a few tips with ways to market your adoptables.
1. Start Small
It is best to start small if you have never been into the adopables "scene". First and foremost, you should always develop a set of rules for your current or future adoptables. List out what the adopter is and isn't allowed to

Yes, we're back on the gun-debate-thing. And this time the pro-gun crowd are pissing me off because they've set in motion a chain of events that will stifle the potentially fabulous ability to transfer what you create on your computer into the real world.
The man behind it harps on about liberty being his motivation for doing it.
Liberty has to be tempered with responsibility, otherwise you just have anarchy. Using new technology to build a gun doesn't make you a champion for freedom, it makes you an attention seeking moron who gives the powers-that-be REASON to restrict it. They will now do everything the can to prevent the proliferation of the technology. They
Desenhe meu OC!“Desenhe meu OC!” é um evento organizado pelo Artistas Brasil que serve de incentivo aos membros de divulgarem seus desenhos, OCs e de se comunicarem.

O que são OCS? Original Caracter é um personagem original feito pela pessoa, ou seja, não é um fanart. Existem half-OCs que são aqueles personagens originais feitos dentro de um universo já existente. Por exemplo: Pegar um Pikachu e dar características próprias para ele, personalidade e aparência. É um OC, mas é de um universo que já existe, Pokémon. OCs realmente originais não fazem parte de um universo pré-existente, a menos que esse universo seja o
